Exhibition Newsflash

Late changes to layouts

We're sorry to hear that the Pyn Valley Tramway will not be with us this weekend, due to health issues. We look forward to seeiing Christopher another time.

We are also sorry to hear that Klinkerhofen will not be attending this year either. However, its owner Norman Raven will instead be bringuing us THE GREAT WHITE RIVER NAVIGATION, EXTRACTION and STEAM PACKET COMPANY. This is a new layout, and this will be its second exhibition appearance.

Exhibition: 2nd-3rd March 2019

Only a few days left! - All systems go.

With days to go, we have updated the website with details of all stands, layouts and societies at the exhibition. This includes the all-important information about stand numbers and in which areas of the exhibition the stands are located.

This year, we have a new area on the upper balcony on the second floor, which was used for the MERG anniversary celebrations two years ago. This time, it's a general exhibition area, primarily dedicated to larger scale model railways.

We have a total of 75 stands this year, with 26 featuring layouts, in a wide variety of scales and sizes, 32 traders, including 3 new traders to our show this year, and 18 societies, covering model railways, other modeling, and the prototype railways. 

See full details here on our website.

We look forward to seeing you on the 2nd & 3rd of March

Annual exhibition

Exhibition Introduction

The 44th Annual Leamington & Warwick Model Railway Exhibition

will take place on

Saturday 2nd March 2019 from 10am until 5pm

and 

Sunday 3rd March 2019 from 10am until 4pm

 Royal Leamington Spa College

Warwick New Road, Leamington Spa, CV32 5JE

 

After the unfortunate cancellation of the March 2018 exhibition, due to the dangerous conditions, we look forward to welcoming you all back for our 2019 exhibition. The exhibition will be held at the same venue as the last few - the Royal Leamington Spa College on the Warwick New Road in the Warwick end of Leamington Spa.

Enclosed below is the front of the exhibition flyer which gives the basic information about the exhibition. As far as the content of the exhibition is concerned, we've tried to keep to the same exhibitors, layouts and traders as we had booked for last year. Obviously a few have changed, mainly due to layout availability, so as final details are confirmed we'll be adding further details to the other exhibition pages here on the website.

Driving Routes to the Exhibition

Travel Bulletin - Sunday

The British Heart Foundation Warwick Half Marathon will again be taking place this year on the weekend of our exhibition, taking place on Sunday 4th March 2018.

 Consequently there will be a number of road closures that will affect visitors travelling from the Stratford direction or down the M40 from Birmingham on Sunday morning who were planning to drive through Warwick.

 The race route map can be found here on the BHF website. It starts at Warwick Racecourse proceeds to St Johns (which is on the direct route from the motorway to the exhibition centre) and then proceeds out of town towards Coventry on the north side of Warwick. Road closures commence at 8am around the race course and 8:30 in most parts of Warwick town centre. Full details of the road closures can be found here. There is likely to be traffic congestion in the centre of town as drivers look for parking because at this time of year there is no parking available on the grass at the race course.

 We recommend avoiding the centre of Warwick completely on Sunday morning.

 If on the M40 do not leave the motorway at junction 15 (Longbridge), if coming from Stratford or Wellesbourne, at the motorway roundabout ignore the Warwick exit and the motorway southbound carriageway to cross the river, just a few hundred meters. Immediately leave the motorway at the next exit junction 14 the A452. At the end of straight link road take the second exit off the roundabout towards Leamington Spa onto Europa Way. Go straight over the first roundabout, (BRW & Volvo dealers on the right), at the next roundabout take first exit effectively straight on, shortly go straight across the next roundabout (2nd exit). Go under the railway bridge and at the traffic lights go straight ahead onto Princes Drive. The railway should be on your right hand side. At the T junction mini roundabout, turn right, the college is on the right so at the traffic island fork right to the car park entrance.

 

The exhibition venue at the Royal Leamington Spa College on Warwick New Road, CV32 5JE is reached easily from all main driving routes. 

At this point in time we are not aware of any road works that may impact on journeys to the venue. Details will appear here if we are able to provide warning in advance of any planned disruption.
